We can’t remember the last time we checked in on Kristie Sue Costa—probably shortly after her Facebook homage page to child abusers Abraham Christie and Ella Draper was blocked in the UK.
Since then, we’d heard that she’d fallen head-first into the bottomless “Q Anon” pit, and frankly, we were neither surprised nor sad to see her go.
Yesterday, though, we discovered that while Kristie Sue—whose mantra is “Believe the Children!” (except when they admit they’d been forced to lie)—is still chasing the QAnon chimera, she’s branched out a bit.
Now, it seems that she has followed the baying mob of American alt-right conspiranoid trolls, and has begun happily attacking the teenagers who’ve been standing up for their right not to be murdered while they attend school.
Here she is chiding 17-year-old David Hogg, a student who survived the massacre of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018, and has become a gun control advocate and an activist against gun violence:
In typical Kristie Sue fashion, it never occurs to her to check her facts before spouting off: last week was spring break for Florida high school students. We see her sooper-dooper detectiving skillz are as good as ever.
Chris G., you’re a man after our own heart: “I’m assuming (@B_lieveChildren)’s twitter handle is ironic?” And Harem Conspiracy gets second place for his comment about the “nanny brigade”. And here’s Kristie Sue, sanctimoniously failing to fact-check once more. She demands to know why the brother of slain student Meadow Pollack “wasn’t allowed to speak” at the Washington anti-gun rally last week, and must be informed that the event was heavily planned and timed, as there was a huge roster of speakers which had to be accommodated in a limited time. Duh.
But why is Kristie Sue heroising one student and demonising another?
Simple: Meadow’s father Andy has been on a mission to improve school safety—his aim is to put more armed guards in schools and to make it harder for young adults and some with mental illness to buy guns.
But unlike David Hogg and the millions of Americans who demonstrated last week in favour of stricter gun control laws, Mr Pollack isn’t saying anything which could be interpreted as infringing upon Kristie Sue’s right to carry her firearm of choice, whenever and wherever she pleases. [Horrifying thought, need a lie-down now—Ed.]
Meanwhile, here’s Kristie Sue again, advocating a boycott of Hulu (an American subscription video-on-demand service) because they “caved” to those who objected to Fox host Laura Ingraham’s taunting David on Twitter: “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it”, she wrote.
Ms Ingraham later apologised for the tweet, after David posted the names of 12 companies which advertised on her show, and several stated they would withdraw their adverts.
So it looks like once again, Kristie Sue’s rabid hypocrisy has come to the fore: she only wants what’s best for all children (unless they happen to advocate a political position with which she disagrees).
She passionately believes every word that was forced out of RD’s children’s mouths…until they started talking about how they’d been forced to make false allegations. She is filled with compassion for a student who died in the Parkland murders…but attacks a survivor of that shooting for suggesting that he might like to attend school without fearing for his life.
Same as it ever was, eh, Kristie Sue?
